What supplies do I need for a home birth?

Once you have contacted a midwife, she will tell you exactly what you need on hand. A midwife may have her own birth kit that she has already prepared for you, or she will ask you to order a birth kit from an online supply store. Either way, your specific midwife will have a clearly defined list of the supplies you need and where you can get them. Typical supplies are things like gloves, chux pads, cord clamps, suction bulb, peri bottle, sterile syringes etc. Please do not buy anything on your own before you have discussed with your midwife what she requires for a birth.
